to october 1 launch, the secretary and her colleagues at hhs repeatedly looked us in the eye and testified that everything was on track. >> reporter: after a lot of finge pointing in recent weeks, republican marsha blackburn from tennessee pressed on who was to blame and asked if it was any of the top medicare officials. >> michelle snyder is the one responsible for this debacle. >> well, excuse me, congresswoman, michelle snyder is not responsible for the debacle. hold me accountable for the debacle. i'm responsible. >> reporter: more than four weeks after launch the website was taken offline again last night a remained out of commission all morning. >> the program has crashed and burned at least three times. and the user is still having problems. it's been down the whole time you've been testifying. the system is down at this moment. >> reporter: fixing it by the end of november is the administration's goal with some expressing the concern about the ultimate price tag on what's been an expensive launch so far. >> we have spent about $118 million on the website itself and about $56 millio
to be optimistic here. if you support limited government, a lot of us do, you must rejoice that president obama was re-elected. his administration is the single best advertisement about the horrors of big government in a long time. it will have legs going in the future. i am loving this. >> on the other hand there are republicans who say we can work with the president to fix this. is that possible? >> i don't think it's possible. one of the best things that can happen from the deback is a seismic shift in the way that people conceive of government and insurance. and the role the government should play in the healthcare market. let's be honest, there is a terrible misconception throughout we actually had a market in place in healthcare before obamacare took effect. the fact is that the bottoms has been increasingingly involved in a healthcare market for 4 years. this is -- 40 years. this is what we got. now we try to add on more government which meant all the problems double town and got worse. i think that john is right. this is a time to pull back. americans see that. >> rick, you are admittin

us about his knee surgery and how you can go about shopping for them online. you tell me, david, look me in the camera there and tell me you would have picked your knee surgeon based on price. you wouldn't have. you would not have priced. you would have shopped for the best. >> i'll look you right in the eye and tell you that's not true. we have several great hospitals here in new york that offer similar services, all of which are very, very high quality and i choose based on the cheapest one with that high quality. that's the great thing -- it's exactly what i did. >> that is what you do. unless you're not inclined to have dr. obama prescribe you a little pill. >> because there are no choices. the problem is with -- hold up. when the government takes over the whole system and has a monopoly, eventually you won't have the choices. >> that's right. by the way, the government already is involved in half op the health care markets through medicare and medicaid. the thing is what you're talking about, too, dade is choice. what we have now is government mandated insurance plans. the insure
